Personal Alarms, Fall Detection and Stepcounter
The IoT-wearable is a personal alarm device with a fall detector and step-counter. A fall detector is a device that registers when someone has a fall. The device is triggered by an unexpected and rapid movement caused by the fall. The IoT-wearable is connected to the CareBuilder platform and will immediately send out an alarm and request assistance.
Personal alarms and fall detection gives a safe feeling for the wearer and for the people in their surroundings. It’s nice to know that you’re not alone when you have a fall. Thanks to our IoT-wearable, wearers have more confidence and are less scared to go to the bathroom at night for example.
The alarms that are sent after the alarm button is pressed, or when a fall has been detected can be sent to professional care organisations, personal caregivers, family and friends at the same time. They can all see the status of the alarm, who has taken responsibility and who has helped the person that has fallen. This ensures that when someone has a fall, they are helped as quickly as possible.
With the latest upgrade to our IoT Wearable, we optimised the fall detection functionality. It’s now possible to configure the sensitivity for the fall and shock detection per individual device so that each wearer receives the correct protection, based on their needs.
